Default Custom or Cartel?

I'm wondering which binding would be better for the park, the burton customs or cartels?
I'm just starting to ride park so if anyone could give me some suggestions that would be great

They are both an All-Mountain/Freestyle binding. The Cartel is a much higher quality binding with more comfortable straps, baseplate, and higher quality materials so it is for sure the better pick if you have the $.

cartels, but if you really can afford it, the p1's are a more flexible version than the cartels

I had a somewhat small budget, and I was deciding between the cartels, customs, and p1s. i chose cartels and love them.
I'm not gonna list every reason why, but if you want a comparison, message me and I'll be happy to talk to you.

Out of those I think I'd go with the Cartels, but if you're open to more options let us know.

I have both the cartels and customs customs are very flexible and less expensive which is a good thing,cartels are a tiny bit more stiff,but that could be cause I only rode them once so far.but I think either way u can't go wrong.

I think you would be happy with both. However, I narrowed it down to those same two bindings for my new park setup, I ended up going with the Customs since I didn't want such a stiff binding for the park. Think of the cartels as a stiffer Custom with a few more bells and whistles. Both perform well. If I was looking for bindings for freeride I would go with Cartels without a doubt.
